Pezzettino: Will play for car repairs
Help the Milwaukee musician get new brakes and suspension for her Honda Civic
If you don’t know about accordion-wielding Milwaukee singer-songwriter Margaret Stutt of Pezzettino yet, then she obviously hasn’t personally delivered brownies to your door or played an impromptu show in your office. But don’t worry, because she’s probably on her way—few local musicians pound the promotional pavement quite like Stutt. Apparently all that work she did to get the word out about her most recent record Lion has taken quite a toll on her Honda Civic, and she’s hoping local fans can help her cover some recent repair expenses.
Over at fundable.com, Stutt is collecting donations to help pay for $3,000 in repairs to her brakes and suspension. “As an independent professional artist, I pay for everything out of pocket and rely on the support of my community. This is no rockstar lifestyle—I often wake up at 7 a.m., and go to sleep at 4 a.m. There are no big-label budgets involved!” she writes. So far she’s collected $180—not bad but still far short of her goal. Stutt hopes to reach her goal within the 26-day limit dictated by the website.
As always, Stutt is ready to give back to anyone who supports her. For $50 you’ll get a song dedicated to you on YouTube; for $500 you’ll get a house concert within 30 miles of Milwaukee. (Check here for other prizes.) Here's a recent clip of Stutt performing the song "Hunting Season."
